Being a devoutly religious person, the man prayed to God to save him. While he prayed, a neighbor in a canoe stopped to help him. The man rejected his neighbor, believing that God would prevail. A short time later, a search and rescue team drove a boat by the house. The man insisted that he was okay and that God would provide. Finally, a National Guard helicopter flew over.
